I absolutely love this curtain rod! We had a huge, long window in our bedroom, and finding long and sturdy curtain rods is not easy. This is the curtain rod for you! It will NOT sag in the middle regardless of the weight of your drapery...it feels as solid as iron. The color is a nice dark brown. Think of the color of a dark brown coffee bean...or a nice dark chocolate candy bar.
We had to span almost 15 feet (across sliding doors and wall size windows out to a deck). We wanted something that could be one piece but be very sturdy. We were so happy to find these. We found extra wide curtain panels here 100" wide. Instructions said to install mounting brackets every so many feet. It we just wanted one middle mounting brackets so one curtain panel could go on either side. Even though we spanned so many feet, this rod is so well made that with one center bracket it is so strong and sturdy. We he have been opening and closing curtains every day for 7 months and the rod still looks beautiful.
I have had this curtain rod up for about two weeks, now, and it is great! Excellent quality, cast iron made in USA. I had to buy two to have enough extenders to cover my 19.5' wall. I used a total of 5 extension rods plus the two end rods and a total of 7 brackets. I may use the leftovers of my extra set for another window. Overall very happy with this product!
- How did the color on site compare with the actual product? Picture slightly lighter than actual product
- Please tell us about the quality of the product. Excellent, very solid
I bought this because I had an unsusally large expanse to fill, and it works just perfectly. Because of the sheer size of the rod, I required help with installation, but it is beautiful, and looks quite expensive. Definitely NOT flimsy or cheap looking. Thanks again, Overstock!
